Bala-Bala (Vegetable Pancake)

The name sounds so unique, isn’t it?

At some places in Indonesia we call this Bala-Bala, meanwhile, in some other places we call this “Bakwan Sayur” or Veggie Pancake.

Again, this food reminds me to my school time long time ago! I love this too!

This is something that you can have it with your lunch or dinner but also you can have it with your afternoon snack, together with your tea of coffee.

Well, it contains vegetable, but still it deep fried food, don’t eat it too often, once in a time, is ok!
